Notes

Remaster notes:

I EQ'd this show and turned up the volume with hard limiting, balancing the channels as I went, particularly during set 1. I did a little noise reduction using the hiss from the beginning of disc 1 as a sample. There were numerous cuts between songs, again particularly during set 1, that I crossfaded to smooth out the flow of the show. The original version of this had the 2 songs at the end of disc 2 repeated on disc 3. I cut this repeated material right at the first note of The Other One. All in all a particularly good bootleg for 1979, IMHO. Leave it to the Deadheads. They really know how to tape.

Subject: Great upgrade. Overlooked period and show
Very overlooked, noteworthy show. First and only Dark Star between 1978.12.31 and 1981.12.31. Though only a brief jam and only the first verse, it's still a treat to hear on this crystal clear AUD upgrade.

Keith's chop keys are easily ignorable, as we all know, he tenure with the band would come to an end shortly. Donna left the tour two dates early and nothing from this show lacks from her absence.

Standout versions of Stagger Lee, Jack A Roe, Estimated, and Other 1 wrap around Drums. This is one of those gems that people often overlook since only audience tapes circulate, but this upgrade is well worth the listen/download. Rhythm Devils and Jerry are WAY up front in this recording. Great Billy & Mickey.

Thanks for this.
